Organic Chicory Sugarloaf

NZ $2.95

Description

This Chicory forms a head like a large Cos Lettuce which can be cut and used as Witloof, Endive or Lettuce, through autumn and winter. The leaves fold into dense heads being green on the outside and light yellow inside, while growing in the open ground without any kind of forcing. When cut the crowns may re-sprout after the first crop. Sow seeds from mid-summer to early autumn for best flavour and growth. Withstands light frosts.

Maturity 75 days from transplant.
